Ron graduated from Utrecht Conservatoire (NL) in 2005 with an Honours degree in Jazz and Pop. He's always been a performer as well as a tutor. In the past two decades he has taught bass guitar- and piano lessons to many students, ranging from 4 to 84 years old. He's also done recording- and coaching projects with a dozen bands.

In the current circumstances most lessons take place online, via Zoom or Skype. If you'd rather do face to face lessons, however, you can do the lessons at Ron's home studio, which is made entirely Covid safe.

The content of the lessons is dependent on your wishes and will be tailored to your specific needs. Ron's teaching method is chord based, which helps to give you a good understanding of how music works. Lessons could then develop into working on improvisation skills, songwriting/composition and/or the ability to play songs by ear.

For bass guitar lessons Ron usually works on a mix of bass tabs and chord sheets. On piano it works well to do a mix of sheet music and chord sheets, but all of this can be discussed. Around the songs you'll be working on, the lessons will include the necessary technical exercises and bits of theory to make you understand how to take the next step.
